This past year our friend Reid Hemsing of Two Wheel Gear , invited Momentum Mag to come and share an office with him. What began as two bike industry related companies sharing office space became an awesome cross pollination of ideas, contacts, friendship and an expanded perspective of what bike gear our readers might be interested in. You have probably never read an article about clipless pedals before on momentummag.com. And after rolling our eyes a few times and being skeptical, Reid convinced us that it’s time to at least talk about whether or not we need them. We hope you enjoy Reid’s guest blog post.

Intro to Clip-In Bike Shoes: Do I Need These?
We all know that commuting by bike is a great way to stay fit and be active. For those that do it regularly having the right equipment can greatly improve your experience. This can include having a good set of pedals. For the stop and go commute that is riddled with traffic lights and stop signs clipless pedals may not be the best option, but if you have ever considered giving them a try hopefully my experience will help you in your decision making process.
I’m an urban bike commuter. I am not a performance oriented rider. For as long as I can remember a pair of flat, stiff soles was all I needed.
